The Eat Local Challenge for 2006 will be in May. Last year it was in August and was a very educational experience for me. I learned a lot about what food is grown in my area.

But May is a very different growing season here than August. I found a handy chart that tells me what grows here in May – Asparagus, broccoli (yuck!), greens, herbs, lettuce, peas, radishes, and possibly rhubarb. Not a great basis for a full menu.

In the next week or so Jen from Life Begins at 30 will be starting a new Eat Local blog. Stay tuned for updates.
